There's Snow Time For Quirkiness!

I think everyone must be out Christmas shopping in Blogland it's very quite today! (and yesterday, and the day before and the day before that...) Where is everyone? Hello!!! Well, whether you're there or not, it's time for another Quirky Crafty's Challenge! This time it's my turn to set the theme...and I've chosen...
Which means of course we wanna see some snow!! It can be a Christmas card or a birthday card, scrapbook page, ATC, Fat Page, altered art, in fact, anything crafty you can add snow to. Easy!
I've made four DT cards for this challenge. I shall post them all separately, mainly because I was hoping to beat my last years postings, alas it doesn't look like I'm going to achieved that this year..but you never know, if they find chocolate on Mars, then, anything could happen!
This time we're sponsored by Limited Runs and Paper Pretties so that means two lots of prizes! Yay!!
I've used both sets of images I was sent.
Here's my first card: I've used this cute and rather quirky Snowman from Limited Runs! Coloured with...well, I've used red, black and pastel blue ProMarkers. (so not much colouring!)I cut the icicles out with scissors as I don't have a border icicle punch (*hint!!) There's some micro glitter on his scarf to make it sparkle. I printed out two digi's, embossed the first one with snowflakes and then cut out the second (minus his stick arms) and fixed him over the top with silicone glue.
The papers are from a paper pack called Snowed in Winter papers by My Minds Eye, free from Card Making and PaperCraft a little while ago.
The inside printed backing paper, Let it Snow, was a freebie  from  Madabout cards (who have now closed....try Printable Heaven)
The Font is called Cream and Sugar
New Followers!! Hi and a big wave to Carole Sweeny busy with Christmas makes and a WOYWW fan and Tracy who has some gorgeous jewellery over on her blog!
That's it for now...more posts coming up later with my other Quirky DT cards or pop over to the challenge blog to see them, as well as all the other fabulous DT makes. Thanks for stopping by!
